Santana (foot) will continue his rehab assignment with Triple-A Worcester on Tuesday, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports. Santana played in three rehab games with High-A Greenville over the past week and went 4-for-10 with a home run, a double, two runs and two RBI during that time. The 30-year-old appears to be trending toward full health since he'll now face upper-level talent in the minors. Once Santana is deemed fully healthy, the Red Sox will need to add him to the active roster or release him.
Santana (foot) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Greenville on Tuesday, Chris Hatfield of SoxProspects.com reports. Santana began playing in simulated games at the alternate training site last week, and he appears to be trending toward full health. It's not yet clear how many games Santana will require to ramp up during his rehab assignment, but the Red Sox will need to decide whether to add the 30-year-old to the active roster or release him once he's fully healthy.
Santana (foot) began playing in simulated games at the Red Sox's spring training site in Fort Myers, Fla. last week, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports. "He's going through his progression. He's getting his at-bats. He's feeling good. And he's progressing well," manager Alex Cora said of Santana. Coming off September elbow surgery, Santana arrived at spring training with some limitations, but it was a right foot infection that was the main cause of him being sidelined for much of the Grapefruit League slate. Santana appears to have moved past the infection at this point, but he still may need a week or longer to fully ramp up again. Once the Red Sox are comfortable with his conditioning, they'll have to decide whether to add the veteran utility man to the 26-man active roster or release him and allow him to pursue opportunities elsewhere.
Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Monday that Santana (foot) was cleared to resume baseball activities last week, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports. Santana is expected to continue his rehab from a right foot infection at the Red Sox's alternate site for the foreseeable future while the organization evaluates him for a potential promotion to the majors. The 30-year-old has yet to resume participating in simulated games, so he'll likely need at least a couple more weeks to get back up to full speed.
Santana (foot) was moved to minor-league camp Friday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports. It doesn't matter much exactly which camp Santana is assigned to at the moment, as he's been shut down following surgery to address an infection in his right foot. He's also still getting over September elbow surgery and was behind his teammates in camp due to not signing until early March, so he has a lot of work to do before he's back in game shape.
